Billboard is adding a slew of Nielsen BDS-monitored radio stations to its Latin chart reporting panels on Thursday, July 1. Riverside, Calif.’s KRQB (Que Buena 96.1 FM), Kansas City’s KYYS-AM (1250 "La Super X"), WAFZ (La Ley) in Ft. Myers, Fla. and WOLS (La Raza 106.1 FM) in Charlotte, N.C. will contribute to both the regional Mexican airplay panel and the overall Hot Latin Songs chart.

Sacramento’s KLMG (Latino 97.9 FM) will report to both the Latin pop airplay panel and Hot Latin Songs. Boston’s WAMG-AM (Mega 890/1400) will report to the tropical and Hot Latin Songs chart.

Four stations—Houston’s KAMA (104.9 Tu Musica), Chicago’s WNUA (Mega 95.5 FM), Tucson’s KTZR (Mia 97.1 FM) and Austin’s KLQB (La Que Buena 104.3 FM) will report only to Billboard’s Hot Latin Songs chart, not the subgenre airplay charts, because they play recurrents more than half the time. The stations will be added to their subgenre panels once their playlists reflect mostly current songs.

Questions on the changes can be directed to Billboard’s Latin chart manager, Rauly Ramirez, at rramirez@billboard.com.
